Yemeni forces carried out a major offensive against Tabat al-gawiah Qaem Zabid, al-Shabaka, al-Kers bases and the strategic al-Ghavieh military camp, destroying or damaging many armored vehicles and military equipment.
The surprise attacks also killed and wounded dozens of Saudi troops, it further said, adding that a number of senior Saudi military officials were also slain in the offensive. The operation forced the remaining Saudi troops to flee their bases, leave behind some burning arsenals and taking refuge in the Al Sianah camp in the kingdom’s southwestern province of Jizan.
The Yemeni forces, however, managed to seize a considerable amount of weapons from the bases during the attacks, which lasted from early morning to the afternoon.
The Yemeni forces also killed at least 22 Saudi troops and injured 25 more during a battle near the strategic Bab al-Mandab strait, in southwest Yemen.
Yemen’s army and popular committees have been launching retaliatory attacks against parts of Saudi territory adjacent to northern Yemen, as well as the gatherings of Riyadh-allied militants inside Yemen.
